Roxie Theater: Mata Hari: The Naked Spy
August 25, 2019 @ 1:30 pm - 3:30 pm
Director Susan Wolf IN PERSON!
“A fast-moving, ever-engaging film. It’s one in which you keep waiting for the other shoe to drop — and it usually does!” – Jon Bowman, Santa Fe New Mexican
At the height of her fame, Mata Hari’s erotic dances packed theaters across Europe, and her image graced the cover of Vogue. Yet within a decade she was gunned down by a firing squad – convicted as a German spy. Newly-discovered documents cast doubt on her guilt and reveal startling truths about her life as an abused wife and mother. As a free-spirited and independent woman, Mata Hari struggled to attain sexual freedom, artistic expression and liberation from the constraints of conventional society. Women around the world today face the same challenges. Mata Hari’s courage when facing her death is as heartbreaking today as it was in 1917.
Directed by Machiel Amorison, Susan Wolf. USA. 2017. DCP. 78 mins.
